Making really great friends is like trying to get Ryan Gosling to go on a date with you; nearly impossible and totally exhausting. But once you’ve truly met the friends that won’t judge you for being yourself, you won’t have to look any further.
Everyone goes through their own journey of making friends, losing friends and reconnecting with old ones. Sometimes people you don’t even see coming will become your greatest friends. And sometimes, the ones who you think will never hurt you, actually do.
The truth is that your real friends that matter won’t hurt you. They won’t date the boy who you adored. They won’t lie to you about it afterwards. They won’t witness you crying on the couch in a fetal position, and not say sorry. The real friends that matter would never dream of hurting you like that. Your real friends are the ones who console you afterwards, and who run to your apartment as soon as they hear. Your real friends are the ones who favorite all your subtweets about that friend and who defend you when they see her at the bar.
Your true friends are the ones who stay up till 3 am with you trying to catch a mouse with Tupperware containers. They are the ones who bring wine to your apartment for a girls’ night in. Your true friends are the ones who hold you when you go through your first breakup and go to wine festivals with you and not even care that it’s raining.
Your true friends are the ones who ask about your mental health without judgement.
They are the ones that dance to old Avril Lavigne songs with you and let you borrow their black dress for a night out on the town. Your true friends are the people you call when something good happens in your life and when something bad happens in your life.
Your real friends are not the ones who shatter you. They are the ones that help you pick up your broken parts and stitch them back together. They are your wolf pack who growl at anyone who tries to eat you alive.
